NBC Sports’ Carolyn Manno

Sports Reporter Carolyn Manno

You can never go wrong with a young, blonde sideline reporter, and NBC Sports has figured this out with Carolyn Manno doing the sideline work for them during post-game segments on Sunday Night Football. I first caught her doing post-work on the Steelers-Jets game earlier today.

Looks like besides NBC Sports’ primetime work, she also recently covered the Olympics for them, and does local work for Comcast SportsNet New England. Her bio courtesy of NBC:

Carolyn Manno joined the NBCUniversal family in August of 2009 and will be making her Olympic debut at the 2012 Olympic Games in London as a sports desk anchor and reporter. She currently works as an anchor/reporter for Comcast SportsNet New England and as a contributor to csnne.com. While in Boston, Carolyn covered Super Bowl, Stanley Cup and NBA Finals appearances by the New England Patriots, Boston Bruins and Celtics, in addition to the most epic collapse in Red Sox history in September 2011.

A Florida native and graduate of University of Florida, Manno previously spent three years in South Bend, Ind., where she covered the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, Chicago Bears, Cubs and White Sox, Indianapolis Colts and the Indy 500. While there, she earned multiple first place awards from the Associated Press, an Edward R. Murrow Award for Sports Journalism and an Indiana Spectrum Award for journalistic excellence.

K.G. is as impressed with Carolyn Manno as I am, apparently:

    I’m sure that Carolyn Manno has learned today(6/15/14)of the death of Casey Kasem. I bet she didn’t know that Kasem use to voice NBC in the late ’70s before the late Danny Dark took over around 1981. This was before she was even born. CM was born in 1984.

    Oh Carolyn, if you’re reading this, you ought to wish a happy retirement to Chuck Gaidica, who was weeknight meteorologist at NBC’s Detroit affiliate WDIV(nee the “old” WWJ-TV). Even a former WDIV anchor named Mort Crim, who even worked in Philadelphia wished Gaidica a happy retirement.
